Inspirational Ceremonies

Ceremonies and celebrations mark important times in our lives. I will work with you to create a ceremony that recognizes and celebrates your occasion in the way that you wish.

Non religious ceremonies

Inspirational Ceremonies…

Inspirational Ceremonies creates personalised non religious ceremonies to recognise and celebrate the key milestones in your life and provides Humanist Naming, Wedding, Civil Partnership, Vow Renewal and Funeral Ceremonies.

Designed especially for you…

Your ceremony will be designed especially for you, to reflect your individuality and personal values and can be part of either a small or large celebration.

Your ceremony can be personalised by incorporating a particular interest or theme or more simply by using readings, poems and music.

You can hold your ceremony at an indoor or outdoor location of your choice – in your own home or garden, at a hotel or historical building, in a marquee or at a beauty spot. It is up to you!

Creating ceremonies in Cumbria, Lancashire & Yorkshire

My name is Debra Jessett and I am the celebrant for Inspirational Ceremonies. I have been conducting humanist ceremonies for the last eleven years and will work closely with you to design your own personal ceremony.

I am a trained and accredited humanist celebrant with the Humanists UK and also hold a Summer Mountain Leadership Award. I have conducted ceremonies in a wide variety of venues, including many different settings in the outdoors, and have over twenty years of experience of working with families and organising events.

I run Inspirational Ceremonies from my home in Kendal, Cumbria, and deliver humanist ceremonies throughout South Cumbria and North Lancashire including Windermere, Ambleside, Ulverston, Sedbergh and Lancaster. I also travel to North Cumbria and North Yorkshire, such as Keswick, Carlisle, Penrith and Skipton. I will consider working further afield in the UK and abroad, on personal request.

The service I provide…

The main service that I provide includes an initial meeting with you to design your ceremony, the preparation and writing of your ceremony, and then finally delivering your ceremony on the day. A rehearsal is also included for Wedding and Civil Partnership Ceremonies. I also offer a script-only service if you would prefer a family member or friend to deliver your ceremony but would like help with the content.
